The Vent d'Est festival is a meeting place for the Savoyard identity with the culture of Eastern Europe. Every summer about fifty artists mainly from Russia and Ukraine are welcomed on the principle of exchange: the artists, guests of the association do not receive a stamp, but their trip, as well as the entirety of their stay, are totally supported by the local association Maslinitsa.
For 18 years, the tiny office of the association has shown immense energy, to make
to be reborn every year, this week of colorful animations and shows of high quality.
The association welcomes in the best conditions the artists, who leave the heart full of memories of La Rosière.
It makes it possible to offer to the greatest number an opening on the world, the culture, the traditions and the facets of all the Russias.
So, dear festival-goers, we hope for you a lot for this 18th edition, which will see again Ukrainian, Russian, French and English (for years Richie!) Come together on and around the stage, for the best of artistic and human sharing.
